I like to take a break at Starbucks Courtenay Central. Starbuck has nice hot chocolate. I do find the pick up counter difficult to understand. At starbucks Lambton quay they write your name on the cup and call it when the drink is ready. Courtenay Central just yell a product name and the customers all wait to see if someone... More

Love Starbucks and this one is up to the high quality that I expect. Typical Starbucks atmosphere with friendly staff, diverse visitors, and good music. I prefer the one on Lambton as there's more space (second floor) but the Lambton one closes too early. The one on Courtney is open late which is great!

Better service here than the some of the restaurants close by... Always friendly and smiling. You really can't go wrong with their coffee... franchised but still delicious. Definitely enjoy coming here.

Wellington is awash with amazing coffee places but Starbucks still holds its own with comfy seats to sit in, a nice atmosphere and free wifi. Not the greatest coffee in the city by any stretch but well decked out.
